New $5M roundabout opens in West Virginia town of Glenville

GLENVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — A new roundabout has opened in Glenville, West Virginia after the completion of a $5.07 million traffic project.

A ceremony was held on Thursday at the site of the intersection that includes US 33. It aims to ease congestion and improve traffic flow between the town of Glenville and Glenville State College.

It was funded with federal money and money from the Roads to Prosperity bond initiative, according to a news release from Gov. Jim Justice’s office.

“This is just the fifth roundabout in the state, and it’s been much-anticipated by the community of Glenville and the college as well,” West Virginia Transportation Secretary Byrd White said, according to the release.
